A gourmet wedding in Italy is usually based around mare, that is to say the sea with its bountiful fish and seafood, monte or the mountains, and all of the delicious produce coming from farmland, including cured meats, game, cheeses and vegetables. Combine this with the crisp whites, tangy sparklers and profound reds of Italian wine, and delicious pastries and liqueurs... and you are in gourmet heaven!
From rustic agritourisms to chic seaside restaurants, wine tastings to tours of local farms, Italy has plenty to offer a couple looking to indulge the tastebuds before, during and after the event!
These four mouth-watering venues are just right for a gourmet wedding:
The island of Capri has long been the preferred destination of the rich and the famous, and you can see why. The Il Riccio restaurant, right on the sea front and decorated in fresh, clean, Mediterranean colours and boasting two Michelin stars is the best place on the island to enjoy mouth-wateringly good fresh fish and gourmet cuisine from Capri.
With incredible views and a relaxing, welcoming atmosphere, this restaurant is the perfect place for a gourmet wedding on the sea.
The Castello di Vicarello, immersed in an extensive biodynamic estate among the rolling green hills of Tuscany is perfect for a trip back in time to how the countryside used to be. Taste the flavours of the land, from home grown vegetables and fruits ripened under the Mediterranean sun to delicious game caught wild on the estate and exquisite home-grown wine.
Experience the Italian countryside how it was meant to be, and dive into the wonderful sights, smells and, above all, flavours of Tuscany.
The incredible view from the terraces of the Costiera Ristorante coupled with its reputation for attention to detail, exquisite styling and gourmet dishes make it one of the most sought after venues on the Amalfi Coast. Enjoy the wonderful flavours of Italy along with views of one of the world’s most beautiful coastlines for the perfect party in absolute privacy.
For a romantic wedding reception complete with delicious Mediterranean food and wine followed by dancing on the terraces until late, there is no better place.
The delicious local and international cuisine served at this stunning four star hotel just a stone’s throw from the famous Piazza Tasso at the centre of Sorrento can be enjoyed in the restaurant, on the sea-view terraces or by the swimming pool. Immersed in the lush green of a secular park in the town centre, with beautiful views of the coast, this elegant hotel has it all.
For a Mediterranean love story and a taste of true Italian hospitality, there is nowhere like this beautiful Sorrento Coast hotel.
